MWD Tech Recommendation: Rode NT 1 5th Gen & Adobe Animate

Adobe-Express

 

 

  We have been working with Adobe Express for a couple of months now and love it. You can create just about anything to market your business from digital to print. I started playing with their latest feature (Adobe Animate) and love all of the options you have to animate any message you want to put out to the world. You can add any background that you want as well (during editing) and publish your video. At the time of writing this post Adobe Animate is still in beta so features like their mobile site dont work yet. Still give it a try, you will not be dissapointed. They have a free trial or you can pay $10 to get all of their features as well as access to Rush and Photoshop. Adobe express is excellent for adding content to your website or social media. While recording a video with the character above (Steve) i noticed my sound was not very good. I was using my MBP’s mic so that’s probably why. Even while pressing the small “Enhance speech” switch above i still did not quite get the result I was looking for so I got my first “semi professional” mic to see if that would make a difference.

 

  I waited a couple of days but finally got the Rode NT1 5th gen in. The mic comes with a usb-c connection so you can connect to your computer right away without the need for an audio interface for it as this is a large diaphragm condenser mic. So far i have tested the mic with a couple of loom recordings and adobe animate and my sound comes out way better, deeper and more clear vs using the internal mic on my computer. This thing is legit. If you want to use it for youtube videos or podcasts you should probably get an audio interface for it but if you are just using it for zoom or loom or adobe animate like I am it’s definitely a good option to make your sound better. If you get it you will either need one of those mic arms or a mic stand. The samson MD5 stand i got for it is solid and takes minimal space and will not scratch your desk. If you only want to use it for audio communication it will probably be overkill for you and there are other smaller options out there but if you plan to podcast or do YouTube later on like I am get it, you will love it and it comes with a 10 year warranty.

  Ps neither are Adobe or Rode sponsors. These are just my recommendations on these products that i use daily.
